12:38 am
have 60 letters a little bit more of support from the community as well a petition that has been signed by over hundred supporters in the file the lab has opposition from other tenants in the building this is mostly regarding sound levels that the lab admits and scheduling conflicts they did an abatement test for the space last week supervisor campos legislative aide joseph and i had a successful meeting with the labs correspondent with the pier building manage from missouri joe and the outcome was the final agreements between the lab in the building other tenants have had past noise issues expressed their approval the sound level during
12:39 am
their sound tests in the space in the building the lab expressed their commitment to the tenants of the building to one keep the show to the decimal level and provide a phone number for all sound levels issues or do a sound meter set of the 3 having a quieter events made possible by advance notice and provide a public calendar so tenants will know of the lab shows and allow others tenants to post their events so there is transparency and hopefully avoid conflicts and the tenants want the district of columbia level not be increased until testing is done mission station supports this application and submitted the conditions as you can see and here to talk about the lab is applicant deanna.
12:40 am
>> can i ask one quick question is this coming into compliance issue. >> great i'm not sure why after so many years we're asking. >> their custodial non-inclines and are you recommending those permits attached. >> that will be recommended because that was what will come up between the other tenants in the building and the lab and it was you know look at coming. >> hi supervisors i'm president to thank maggie and the staff to the patience and others and especially joseph is the aide to supervisor campos and has been absolutely wonderful so, yes, the experience issue is
12:41 am
definitely an issue the lab is a precious case for 5 years i took over 10 months ago and as a curator trying to right the ship with new operating procedures and complete overhaul of everything i've been working with them and not understanding the complaint i've noted received a single complaint many other tenants in the building and with mow joe we put in a sound proof ceiling that didn't permit the lower ceiling on the floor we were able to do the sound test with maggie and joseph present there the decimals level explicit create a change we did another sound test with peter and put of but 80
12:42 am
hertz low frequency sound and i did create more 8 decimal differences between the minimal 55 level so that was a problem and for you know for this time i made a commitment to turn down the base level frequencies on the lower level external shows that coupling come through so yeah that's what we're trying to do >> great commissioners you guys have any questions for the applicant. >> commissioner joseph. >> i have one good for you to know what basis frequencies to turn down i have a question on security so the security a you'll volunteers. >> that's correct. >> so the description of a volunteer they volunteer to do a job but not paid they don't have to be there so you assign a volunteer to the door and they
12:43 am
decide they don't want to do it and walk away the possibility of it not being a paid security person concerns me someone that is actually working for you agreed. >> i understand you're a nonprofit. >> yeah. >> but i'm concerned i don't have a real security guard and our volunteers are not trained. >> yeah. >> they're not trained no security not backgrounds and what necessary need to do and i don't like our security plan i understand you're an arts organization and theatre i still think you need a security guard it is trained and relying will are you willing to do that. >> we approved in our budget in the concern i work the door so i'll sitting there and basically auditing people coming in the door we have 49 occupants it is
12:44 am
is manageable crowd but there, there is a rear door i've been having trouble with the rear door leads to the hallway and it is from the doors in the building are not locked their locked after 5 we have an event before 5 people walk to the front door into the back you found i've moved our events avenue 5 in all ticketed events and all events that require a door management and guard so this is definitely a concern for me our budget was approved with the board we raised some money last year we're putting on two full-time paid staff members to work those fentsdz. >> will one of them be a security guard. >> yes. >> will we have a security guard. >> can they do testing. >> they take a class and test afterward and get it printed and

12:47 am

12:48 am
license their floors are older wood so liquor on the floor smells like a bar so through deanna to obtain those abc permits when they're reasonable to do so otherwise i'll be looking out for alcohol violations all from us >> fair enough any questions for officer parker. >> no, thank you all right. commissioners open up for public comment any public comment on the lab? we definitely have a lot of written comments so thank you, everyone there >> joseph smith with supervisor campos on behalf of the supervisor thank the entertainment commission for supported our requests of the waiver for the fees for the lab to become a place of entertainment the lab is a cultural resource

12:57 am
city attorney i think personally i think it clarifies this and made it clear the subsequence of discussions i don't know if director cain would recycle to say more on that. >> i think i said a lot when we met in the other meeting probably too much so i think under - yeah. is r ask if there are any questions regarding you can this basically proposal and i'm here to answer them the best i can and acknowledge that this is a work in progress this is something that may change in the future so if we want to change those procedures we'll do the same notice this one is more scrub active than the 72 hours notice
12:58 am
but we want to change anything we can we haven't flushed out the conversation of the subcommittee so i'll ask for a little bit more discussion be had but other than that the way is reads is very much giving people an idea how those discussions will be made but not committing us one way or the other this is a case by case until we get into a realism it becomes clear which ones need to come before the committee. >> i read in the classroom hundred and thirty commits; is that right. >> there's more but again in different phases of the process and each week we push anti some of them fall off they get two late that's okay. i'm not in a panic about it there is more behind it but, yeah that was a
12:59 am
long conversation with the reporters and some of it right and some not. >> commissioner joseph. >> i have a question i understand this is a brand new process we're going to vote on today it is policies and procedures for us we can change and modify our policies and procedures as we go along. >> right. >> i have only one i have two questions one on this little graph that is here it shows a sound inspection can you explain to me dots inspectors go out and just inspect the building exactly what are they required. >> depending on where each project is when we comes to you with the sound like studies that may have been performed previously by the project sponsor or me may not in the case we don't we felt like we
1:00 am
may send out the inspectors to do ambient sound reading during some point at the project site as as much as we getting get there so give you information otherwise you have none. >> okay and the second question i have is do you feel it is relevant we form this committee do you want to wait on it what are - where you are you at. >> where am i at perp i think the idea of having a committee may speed those meetings up i don't know if it will create more work for the folks on the committee necessarily but potentially that will so this is something to think about if you approve this
